My BGG Secret Santa has been amazing. He has given me a series of puzzles to solve. I've been having a lot of fun, but have gotten stumped on this early puzzle. I need you, fellow BGGers, to help me with it. Here's the 2 pictures that I have:





They look like Tangrams to me, but I can't figure out where to go from there. I know that they are both words, but that's about the extent of my knowledge. I'm looking for ideas and clues to figure this thing out.

Lol, thankfully that isn't the case. Santa already gave me my present, I think this is just for fun.

Nice find, Tadpoleface. And nice work, clever Secret Santa. A very appropriate reference, given the OP's avatar and Tardis microbadge.

Actually, the whole thing has been very Dr Who themed. So it's been awesome! Santa really knows what he's doing.

I wonder if your secret santa is the one who had me two years ago. He/she discovered that I was a mathematician and started sending me encrypted messages, along with messages with some serious mathematical analogies and clues embedded in mathematical language. It was awesome!

We have no way of knowing if it's the same guy, but I love the heart that has gone into both of these. He certainly inspires me to do a better job as Santa next year.
